Apparently my current posting frequency is once a month. I have been so busy with my work life and my home life that the blog has fallen by the wayside. My husband and I are now officially trying to get pregnant. Nothing has happened as of yet, but at least we’ve crossed the threshold of […]


So I guess I haven’t written much because there hasn’t been much to tell. I’ve been really focused on being active and getting healthy. I’ve been losing weight and feeling good. My RA doc says that I’m doing well off the Methotrexate and that hubby and I can start trying to get pregnant whenever we […]


So I bought my husband a Wii for Christmas and my family got me the personal trainer Wii Active to go with it. After using it for a while, I couldn’t help think of the many benefits and difficulties with this program due to my RA. Benefits: This is an opportunity to work out at […]


I can’t believe it has been so long since I posted. Unfortunately, I had some sort of virus and that put me out of commission for a while. I had a fever and had to hold my meds. This meant that my RA flared and then I was in bed because of that instead of […]


Well I just got back from a two day trip to New York City. I decided to go to the taping of the Daily Show after encouragement from friends. The results were…mixed. I asked the show if I could be accommodated, due to my difficulty with standing. They told me to ask for a chair […]

For the first time in a long time, I’ve acomplished everything I had put on my list to do today. Working out, cleaning, cleaning some more, laundry, and good old fashioned me time. Often, when I get to the second cleaning item on my list, I am just tired out. It is possible that all […]


This week is my summer vacation. As it has been termed this year,  it is a “staycation.” So far, it is just what I’ve needed. Plenty of rest and relaxation. Unfortunately, the more I rest the more I want to rest. Thankfully, tomorrow we have plans to get out of the house. I have done […]


I have been doing a pretty job at keeping active these last few months. I have been strength training and doing some sort of cardio at least three days a week. But for some reason, this week, I am just spent. On Sunday, I just got distracted and put off lifting weights. On Monday and […]
